The hosepipe ban is know on, we are in a new trading environment as of today and the indications are that the ban will be all year even with a wet summer, so we have to adapt or go out of business. Planting plans do not have to be stopped projects can go forward; think positively your clients will be open to suggestions about ways of overcoming the ban. We are a nation that does adapt to anything sent to try us.
There is no restriction on using water as long as it drip irrigation with a timer and pressure reducer, this should give you all an extra line of income. Include in your quotes drip irrigation, it is easy to install, you should water in the plants initially but the drip irrigation will take over after that. Turf can also be irrigated using drip irrigation; in fact we are installing 1500metres of drip pipe for a new lawn at the moment. Once you know how simple installing drip is you will be amazed why you have not used it before. Drip pipe in a border is quick and easy to install and can be put in before or after planting. Drip pipe is only one method of supplying drip there are other methods that can be adapted to cater for hanging baskets and patio tubs
Hosepipe watering is an inefficient way of watering as you cannot evenly distribute the water by hand, there is also the cost of employing somebody to walk around with the hosepipe, irrigation will establish new plantings quickly and with mulch to keep the weeds down and the moisture in it’s a winner all-round. Happy customers and sustained work throughout the drought,
